  Ubuntu 10.04 Can't open RFCOMM device: Permission denied

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: udev

  Cannot open /dev/rfcomm4 new install Ubuntu 10.04. This worked fine in
  Ubuntu 9.10.

  I expected to see:
  Connected /dev/rfcomm4 to 00:1C:88:30:11:45 on channel 1
  Press CTRL-C for hangup

  Instead I have recieved:
   Can't open RFCOMM device: Permission denied

  Same issue happened in Jaunty
  read there that "rfcomm were not in the dialout group" Tried to add
  rule in /etc/udev/rules.d/.

    KERNEL=="rfcomm*", GROUP="dialout" added in rules  worked one time
  then recieved same error message (Can't open RFCOMM device: Permission

  can this please be fixed in the Kernel, it affects many serial
  devices. In this case for me a bluetooth GPS.

  Thank you for your consideration and time,
